Review summary

Great value......However, pick your destinations wisely. We book before the storm hit. It hindsight, we should have cancelled after the storm as the ports visited were most disappointing.

We enjoyed several shows.

Children's Programs

Kids are great, however it was enjoyable that there were very few onboard.......If you have kids, go on a Disney Cruise...

Cabin / Stateroom

Very comfortable and always kept perfectly clean and tidy.

Ship tip

Balcony suite is a must and closest to the center of the ship is the smoothest ride in iffy weather.

Due to Hurricane damage in October 2017, this port is still recovering. Thank goodness we went to Safire Beach to snorkel, as it broke up the day and we got to see some of the Island on the journey to and from the beach. I was very disappointed though on how dirty the island is, which has little to due with storm damage. If tourism is your livelihood, more should be done to keep your island clean. No reason to ever visit again.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Sadly, this was the worst experience due to the recovery effort of the October 2017 storm. I understand that this port once was a tropical paradise, however it will take years to recover to its former glory.
